Ofuro private spa お風呂: purifying rituals
Much more than a simple bath, the Ofuro bath is an ancient Japanese purifying ritual which was originally performed in wooden tubs made of Japanese cypress, “hinoki”. When you set foot inside our Ofuro private spa, you’ll be struck by the incredible power of simplicity: All that matters is here and now, you and your balance. The Zen philosophy of mindfulness comes to life in this ambience that is as unique as it is exclusive. Immerse yourself in the intimate and evocative atmosphere of this oasis with natural wooden elements.

The stages of your purifying ritual
Are you curious to discover how to perform this East-Asian ritual? We’ll explain it to you step by step!
- Step 1: Cleanse the body
Before immersing yourself in the Ofuro bath, it’s first important to wash your body and hair to eliminate the negativity and stress of daily life. During this step, you remain seated on wooden benches inside the showers and, if you’re enjoying the ritual as a couple, gently apply soap to each other to build intimacy and strengthen your bond. Then, carefully and attentively wash yourself.
PS. On request, it is possible to purchase a self-treatment set from the Dolomitika organic cosmetics line with a rice scrub and a cream to hydrate your skin at the end of the treatment.
- Step 2: Purify the soul
It’s time to immerse yourself in the 41°C outdoor Ofuro bath, which has space for up to two acquainted couples. Enter the bath completely nude, without submerging your head, and then simply relax while enjoying the dreamlike view. In keeping with Japanese tradition, you’ll be in direct contact with nature and will enjoy pure intimacy thanks to a pergola hiding you from sight from above.
- Step 3: Unwind
After immersing yourself in the hot water, you can relax inside on double futons, closing the curtain to create a more intimate atmosphere, or reclining outside next to the tub.
